SATO 's CT400 Series printers feature unparalleled processing speed and power, as well as rugged construction, making them ideal for a wide range of labeling applications. The CT400 printers continue the SATO tradition of designing high-quality, high-performance thermal bar code printers.
Throughput - At the core of the new CT400 printers is a new generation ultra high-speed processor. With high-data transfer rates and processing speed the CT400 printers will print continuously, without pausing between labels, even with changes in data and graphics on every label. The incomparable throughput speed of the CT printers truly puts them in a class by themselves.
Windows® Compatible - An important added feature of the CT400 Series printers is the Windows® driver which allows the creation of labels using virtually any Windows® based program. The Windows® driver efficiently utilizes the CT400 printers' internal features to provide the greatest print speed and access to all printer control functions.
Bar Codes - SATO 's CT400 printers also provide the built in ability to print all popular linear and two-dimensional (2-D) symbologies including Micro PDF and QR code. The compact CT400 printers feature a small footprint and a total weight of less than 7 lbs., allowing them to be installed where workspace is restricted.
Options - Optional features include a variety of interface alternatives such as High-Speed RS232C (up to 57.6k bps), USB, and a LAN Adapter.
